In 1995, while talking about the famed underwear catalog, Jeff Foxworthy remarked, “That underwear they make now — it’s so skimpy, Victoria doesn’t have a whole lotta secrets left.”
Well, she’s gonna be trying to keep one…
According to Fox News, Victoria’s Secret has enlisted its first man to be its first woman being represented by its first man.
Brazil’s Valentina Sampaio — a guy identifying as a gal — will soon be front and center for any males wanting to get a look at a female in skimpy clothes.
And for any woman looking for someone like her in their drawers — they’ll get a dude.
Curiously — as in sports as of late — men continue their takeover of women in the role of being women. And the feminists are all crickets.
Maybe this is just the new shift — we’re living in the Era of Men; society’s decided it’s time for a renewed male domination.
Or perhaps, in the case of the bra brand, it’s a bit of damage control: VS got in some trouble a while back with regard to size and sirs.
As reported by The Daily Wire:
The inclusion of Sampaio comes months after L. Brands’ (parent company of Victoria’s Secret) Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek sparked the ire of social justice leftists when he told Vogue that little interest exists for plus-size and trans models on the runway.
“I think we address the way the market is shifting on a constant basis. If you’re asking if we’ve considered putting a transgender model in the show or looked at putting a plus-size model in the show, we have,” Razek said, adding that the sister division, Lane Bryant, was created to fill that consumer need.
“We invented the plus-size model show in what was our sister division, Lane Bryant,” he continued. “Lane Bryant still sells plus-size lingerie, but it sells a specific range, just like every specialty retailer in the world sells a range of clothing. As do we.”
“We market to who we sell to, and we don’t market to the whole world,” he said. “We attempted to do a television special for plus-sizes [in 2000]. No one had any interest in it, still don’t.”
Ed ended up apologizing. Here’s how that went:
“My remark regarding the inclusion of transgender models in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show came across as insensitive. I apologize. To be clear, we absolutely would cast a transgender model for the show. We’ve had transgender models come to castings … and like many others, they didn’t make it. … But it was never about gender. I admire and respect their journey to embrace who they really are.”
Ever wish you had a nickel for every time someone in the public eye uttered the word “insensitive”?
Victoria’s move is a logical cultural step — in 2017, Playboy debuted its first male Playmate, Ines Rau. That way, men could get exactly what they were looking for when cracking open the bunny-eared mag: a half-nekkid man.

Outspoken pro-life porn star Jenna Jameson was unimpressed:
I have a problem with it just like I have a problem with a transgender competing against biological women in sports https://t.co/45ivbb9GHl
